Is Jamaica Safe for Families to Visit
Jamaica has a reputation for having crime problems, however this is sometimes not deserved and is certainly not relevant to tourist areas. Tourism is very important to the island and thus huge efforts are made to keep this jewel safe. As a result tourist areas are extremely safe for everyone, including families. You simply need to exercise common sense, just as you wouldn’t go into known bad areas at home, the same applies to Jamaica. The majority of locals are hard working, friendly people that warmly greet visitors.
